Uber Background Checks Missed Drivers' Criminal Records

Yikes! What good is a background check if it misses cool stuff like murder convictions and sexual assaults ?

One of the Uber drivers highlighted in the amended complaint was convicted of second-degree murder in Los Angeles in 1982, prosecutors said. He was released on parole in 2008 after spending 26 years in prison, but a background check generated for Uber in 2014 failed to reveal the criminal history for the driver, who provided 1,168 rides, prosecutors said.
